Increase - Knit Into Stitch Below

This is a nice increase that doesn’t leave a visual impact on your knitting as the Bar Increase is prone to do. You can choose to slant your increase to the left or right, based on the order in which you complete the stitches.

below1.jpgTo slant right: Insert your right needle into the stitch below the next stitch on your left needle.
